I know you probably passionate about your own team, however what team would/do you have a "soft spot" for and why, state your own team too.

Firstly, I am a Bradford fan and the team I have a soft spot is Leeds :eek:. The reason is because Leeds have a great fan base and are really passionate about their team. The town centre is really nice too and their the biggest team in Yorkshire.

Bradford funnily enough. Villa fan. Thought they were very good at the semi final and enjoyed talking with them after the match. I like their dignity over the Bradford stadium fire as well.

Top club, top fans.

Cheers mate, but have to admit with villa at home and away it was top banter and a really loud atmosphere, really good seeing a team with quality fans

Galatasaray. Ever since I was younger seeing videos of their fans at their old ground I was mesmerised by them. Actually going there was special, for all the intimidation and hostility I felt right at home in "hell". When they're in full flow you look at them and see almost like an army fully willing to kill or die for their cause, at least that's how it feels! Their commitment to intense, wildly fierce, balls-to-the-walls, blood and thunder mayhem is ****ing wonderful. Love those guys!!

Yeovil Town. Silly reason: my mate and I were playing FIFA and decided to use random teams. He got Réal Madrid. I got Yeovil Town. I lost 6-2, but I can tell you we put up a damn good fight (despite the score) - every player had barely any stamina left, and I had to use two subs in the first half.

I have a soft spot for Man United, they have so many loyal fans and you just will them to come out of the shadow of their big spending neighbours and show the world that there are actually two teams in Manchester.

I'm a Liverpool fan but Bolton will always have a soft spot in my heart. My family are fans and I regularly attended the Reebok growing up. I quite like Southampton, too, because of their ability to nurture young talent.

I'm a Liverpool fan and I have soft spots for (too) many clubs, usually because they contain a group of players or a manager I like. For example Athletico Madrid, mainly because of their recovery from the Secunda division (and how they adore Torres for helping them to their promotion) and for being so competitive with a small and cheap squad whilst challenging their insanely rich rivals. Also Arsenal, because they've been so successful with such a relatively small amount of investment compared to the other big prem clubs and because I think Arsene Wenger is extremely nice (and smart). He does not deserve the criticism asking him to leave.

Arsenal fan, but I have to say AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund or Man City (yeah, I know.)

Smaller clubs include Wycombe Wanderers and Leeds.

Queens Park Rangers (best mate's team), Norwich (mum's team).

Teams that I wouldn't say I had a 'soft spot' for but would like to see do well are probably Sheffield Wednesday, Barnsley, Bradford, Huddersfield, Nottingham Forest, Cambridge United, Dagenham & Redbridge, Charlton, Crystal Palace, Millwall, Wimbledon (basically every South London team). Mainly the aforementioned so we can play them sooner!

Used to not mind Leeds either but I've been to Elland Road now and it was a ballache in every respect. We lost 2-1 as well :grumble:

I'm an Arsenal fan but I have a soft spot for a few clubs:

Notts County, Aston Villa, Derby County, Nottingham Forrest, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers, Millwall, Yeovil Town

Don't really know why I just do.

I also have a strong disliking of a few teams:

Stoke, Everton, Liverpool, Chelsea and of course Tottenham
